Abstract
 
Biochemia Medicahas been approved for inclusion in PubMed/Medline bibliographic database, from the first issue published in 2011 year. We believe that this outstanding achievement comes as acknowledgment for many past efforts and some recent developments of the journal Editorial Board, such as recent launch of a new web page, online manuscript submission system and the implementation of the revised policy on the Statement of Conflict of Interest. We will continue our committed work to maintain the timeliness of publication, publication ethics and research integrity, and further improve the quality of content as well as the quality of the editorial work and production of the Journal. We sincerely hope that inclusion of our Journal in PubMed will enable us to increase its international visibility and the number of high-quality submissions.

On behalf of the Editorial Board we proudly announce that in November 2011 Biochemia MedicaJournalhas been approved for inclusion in PubMed/Medline bibliographic database, from the first issue (i.e. 21(1)) published in 2011 year.
Medline is the most important and most comprehensive bibliographic resource in the field of biomedicine, which is managed by the largest medical library in the world - the National Library of Medicine (NLM) (1,2).
This is indeed an outstanding achievement which comes as acknowledgment to the highly devoted editorial team for some recent efforts within the quite short life span of the new Editorial Board of this Journal (3). Besides many developments we especially wish to point out the recent launch of a new web page and an online manuscript submission system (4) and the implementation of the revised policy on the Statement of Conflict of Interest (5).
We hope that inclusion in PubMed will help us to continue improving the quality of the Journal by increasing its international visibility and position within the group of similar respectable journals in the field of laboratory medicine. We also hope to soon observe the substantial increase of the number of high-quality submissions to Biochemia Medica.
This is a great motivation for us to further continue and cherish our key values: timeliness of publication, publication ethics and research integrity, quality of content as well as the quality of the editorial work and production of the Journal.
We take this occasion to thank to all who helped make this great success: our authors, reviewers and Journal editors. We appreciate their voluntary contribution, their precious time and enthusiasm.
Dear authors, reviewers and Journal editors, without your contribution and support this would not be possible!

Biochemia Medica indeksirana u Medline
 
Sažetak
Biochemia Medica je uvrštena za indeksiranje u bibliografsku bazu PubMed/Medline, s prvim brojem objavljenim u 2011. godini. Vjerujemo da je to izvanredno dostignuće uistinu veliko priznanje za mnoge napore i trud Uredničkog odbora, koji je uložen u razvoj Časopisa, te rezultate kao što su primjerice, pokretanje nove mrežne stranice Časopisa, mrežnog sustava za zaprimanje i obradu članaka, te uvođenje nove politike o sukobu interesa autora.
Mi ćemo nastaviti predano raditi kako bismo zadržali redovitost izlaženja, čestitost publiciranja i istraživački integritet objavljenih radova, te nastaviti unaprjeđivati kvalitetu sadržaja, uredničkog rada i izdavanja Časopisa.
Iskreno se nadamo da će ovo prihvaćanje Časopisa za indeksiranje u PubMed bazi dovesti do porasta vidljivosti na međunarodnoj razini i većeg broja kvalitetnih rukopisa zaprimljenih u uredništvo Časopisa.
